Welcome to RAC's Gallery

2015 Exhibition Calendar

We’re open 6 days a week (the gallery is closed on Monday) and admission is free.

Drop by our light, airy first-floor gallery to explore stimulating high-quality art that changes each month.

  • Stroll around or have a seat on our comfortable benches and reflect on the artwork.
  • Bring lunch to enjoy on our deck overlooking the scenic Five Mile River.
  • Meet our artists and other art lovers during the free reception for each exhibit and show.

During the course of a year we display diverse works in all media – acrylic, computer art, drawings, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, prints, sculpture and watercolor.

Our goal is to provide maximum exposure for the talents of RAC members. Six exhibitions include 40-80 works exclusively by RAC exhibiting members … all members and the public have the opportunity to be juried into three other exhibits … and the first exhibit each year features artwork by RAC instructors and students.
